So I'm only making them for myself, but as soon as I get one set made for the AGD grip I'll sell my SP wood grip (the one you are looking for).

But shartley is #1, no doubt about that. Might be worth the wait.
Thank you. I think I need to clarify though… I meant people making them for general sales. There are several out there that made them for themselves but like you said the time involved is way more than relatively simple panel grips. Plus there is a lot more that can go wrong with fitting concerning front wraps.

As for worth the wait…. I hope folks do not wait. If/when I have any front wraps for sale they can always upgrade. But I suggest folks get what they want and works for them now. Even if they are the SP grips, they work fine… well, in fact better than fine. SP grips actually work quite well for a mass produced wooden grip.

Thanks for your post an input though. And keep up the grip making!
